A few more challenges down...

I am now definitely a firm believer of challenge lists!! It shows again on this card....I will be doing that MUCH more often!!





I love the way this card came out - it will be good for one of the little boys that I buy for! Probably my son as his birthday is the next little boy - of course he'll be 15, but this will work for him!

So - here are the challenges:


  • First up - TCP Tuesday for color. Navy, green and white - and I really like the combo!

  • Spoonful of Sugar asked for texture (Touchy Feely is the term they used I believe)

  • Creative Card Crew asked for embossing - I used my Numbers Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background - which covered both of them.

  • Cupcake Crafts asked for numbers - again, Numbers Cuttlebug embossing folder, making it perfect for a birthday card - hence my Verve sentiment.

  • Last, but certainly not least, The Pink Elephant asked for Circles and Scallops. Well - I actually only have one of each - so does that count? If I get time, maybe I'll do a second one for them.


And that will do it for this card! Love the card and the fact that it covered a bunch of challenges! Thanks for stopping by!
